I would wish everyone a “Happy Presidents’ Day” except I don’t think it’s politically correct to celebrate it anymore – seeing as how, so far, they’ve all been old white guys. So let’s reflect instead on this tweet from wretchardthecat (aka Richard Fernandez) for a moment:
Normalizing the abnormal and denormalizing the normal: it really takes a special kind of stupid to do that.
No wonder millennials are confused.
So on this Presidents’ Day let’s just be grateful that we have a President who is unequivocally not confused; he’s going to Make America Great Again regardless of what the confused elitists think.
Excerpts from a very important essay by Sultan Knish: The Elites are Revolting
Somewhere along the way the political projects of the left ceased to be revolutionary. The left won. It took control of nations and set about dismantling them. Its social and economic agendas became law. It ruled through a vast interconnected system of the bureaucracy, media, academia, non-profits and corporations. …
The left had come to envision its victory as inevitable. Its leaders enjoyed the divine right of kings bestowed on them by historical materialism. And so they couldn't see the revolution coming.
The inevitable elites and their power were overthrown. The little people they had been stepping on stormed the castle. All their pseudoscience had failed to predict it. Suddenly the future no longer belonged to the City or to Palo Alto. And its denizens poured out into the streets to protest.
The protests are taking place in the name of oppressed minorities, but like any dot com logo, that's branding. They are actually an angry reaction by an overthrown elite to a people's revolution…
President Trump said, "A nation without borders is not a nation." And that's exactly what the left wanted. No borders and no nations….
People need meaning. It is meaning that gives them a sense of worth. The angry leftist reactionaries find meaning in their post-everything world. The shattering of this world has driven them into the streets. And yet they can't grasp that it was the shattering of their world that drove so many working people to vote for Brexit or Trump. They refuse to comprehend that nations have meaning to more people than their post-national world order of interchangeable multicultural megacities does or that most people want something tangible to hold on to even if it requires labor and sacrifice.
It was a war between Davos, Conde Nast, GQ, Soros, MSNBC, Hollywood, Facebook and America. And America won.
The "resistance" is a collection of elites, from actors at award shows to fashion magazines to tech billionaires, decrying a popular revolt against their rule. They are not the resistance. They are dictators in exile. They had their chance to impose their vision on the people. And they lost. The revolution will not be brought to you by BMW, by a Davos conference, by $100 cologne that smells like nothing or by Facebook lobbying. It will be brought to you by the comeback of America. - Read the whole thing
So from a most decidedly post-normal world I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, elitists, for making all this not just possible, but inevitable:
